Android phone can do more than just playing games and calling. Many day to day task which need planning or reminder can be set onto Android phones apps. Apps like calendar gives you the daily reminder for to-do list and alarm give you a reminder too with some sticky notes. But what about word processing like composing a word document, or creating a presentation on the go or getting sync all the emails accounts into one. For computers we have software to do those specific task, but what if we say there are software on android too which can carry out these task too. So today we are giving away the list of those software which can really boost your productivity and make a perfect scheduling of works to be done with appropriate reminder system.
Below are the top productivity App for Android platforms which you just can’t miss this year.
DejaOffice is similar to Windows office, which can carry out different tasks such as keeping contacts, calendar, tasks list, memos, expense calculator, today’s task, alarm, journal and even creating templates for word processing. So in all DejaOffice is a CRM software for android. But the best part of this App is that it syncs with the outlook and provide all the mails and contacts on Android system.
It works pretty well and can even make call from in App through mobile calling app. It has inbuilt caller id system which comes with its ACT version. Around 3 different apps have been made for Android which are Goldmine mobile sync, ACT mobile sync, Palm mobile sync and Outlook mobile sync. All these are paid version of Deja office and cost $49.95 to $129.95 for perpetual licences.
Outlook for Android
Windows Outlook is a perfect solution for sending and receiving emails from different mail id’s in one. But that works for windows. But they have made an App specifically for this task on Android platform which can sync all your email id’s into one and show it inside their respective tree. Outlook is quite famous in windows and it is gaining same popularity on android platform.
The emails can be synced via Exchange Server. And if you don’t have an Exchange Server then you will be requiring DejaOffice as it acts a server and deliver each mails on different email id into one. This app can also access the calendar data on all the email id you set on it. But there are some flaws too like it need an exchange server, no tasks can be created, neither notes can be created and it requires a Microsoft service to sync calendar.
If you are looking for a best paid app that can sync all your emails into outlook sync then CompanionLink is your best option. It act as a companion app that checks and syncs new emails into outlook sync between android and computer users. It allows to configure the custom fields and sync everything from the outlook database.
Other features of this app includes syncing all data between DejaOffice and Outlook. It also sync locally aal your data over wifi, bluetooth, and even by USB. Theimportant feature of this app include syncing data over cloud interface with DejaOffice and Google.
The calendar apps let you create a reminder for important events and even creates the notes for past events. So calendar apps act as a medium for reminder as well as planner. Google Calendar is an app that is pre-installed in all Android phones. Google calendar is best when it comes to task list and reminders, but still lack many features that are included in Outlook. The main loophole in Google calendar is that it lacks in category management for the task.
Everything is put under the same hood which makes it hard to recognize with reading the description. Apart from these flaws, there is a stand out feature which is the integration of Google voice control “Hey Google”. Through this voice AI you can ask for the meetings and tasks which are upcoming for the day and you will get detailed information about it through the automated voice of Google AI. Through Google voice, you can also set new schedules, reminders and also add important events.
Microsoft Word is word processor app for android which comes from Microsoft. They have already created a revolution in Windows system PC with their Office software and now they have shifted to Android environment to take the market to a boom. Their word app has the best integration to open all the docs supported extension on Android platform. The app has the same look and feel as PC, but has some limitation for its usage and options. The application works slow as compared to PC and does not have font options.
It can edit any document but the editor is quite small and makes it difficult for the user to actually select the particular section or text which needs to be modified. The table creation is also quite difficult and sometimes it loses its orientation which viewing it on PC interface. But if you need to edit some important document on mobile then it will surely come handy. It has option to sync documents to onedrive which could be accessed from any part of the world.
One of the best word processor when it comes to android is the Google docs. The application has the same interface and option as there are in its original cloud version. The main thing to notice here is that it works from the cloud server so whatever changes is made to any document gets saved automatically. The changes are also indicated with time and date. So you can predict what changes were made and also has option to undo them.
The Google docs is one of the best app for viewing the documents on android platform as it supports a huge variety of documents and is not limited to ‘docx, rtf, doc’ format, it can read from pdf and other formats too. The Docs can never replace Microsoft Word as the option to generate huge data documents are only available in Windows Word. The docs lack in creating auto numbered caption and does not provide cross reference to captions.
Google Keep is a note creation app for android. Every note created on Keep’s is kept on the Google cloud server that makes it easy to access it from any device. The notes is not only limited to just posted notes, but you can sketch, add photos and even can create list.
Apart from creating the notes, you can also set reminders for them. The Keep’s reminder system only works with the notes saved on it manually. It does not take the notes from ‘Ok Google’ so it lacks some support there. The app does not sync with other popular Google apps hence making its limitation to access and work other apps.
Many other apps are available in the Play Store for productivity such as listing it, Cam Scanner, Any do, Do it Now, Boosted, Timetune, Productive, etc. We never say that these apps are the best, but we did find them working to its topmost performance when we used it. Other apps had some cons such as connectivity with google drive and other only supporting dropbox for sharing. So we have you did found the app which could be of utmost help to yourself and will surely try it.
